My name is Jana, I'm 26 years old and I'm about 25 pounds overweight. I've just finished my first year at college and I've been married for five years, happily. When I first met my husband I was slightly underweight and people told me I looked unhealthy. Although I ate regularly (anorexia and bulimia would never fly with me), I wasn't exercising or eating correctly. I'm no pro on eating disorders, but I would say that I have one. I think it is one that many of us have and it is degrading to the spirit. It's a daily binge-fest where scarfing down everything in front of me is all that matters until it's gone, and then I get some more. I know that I'm not as bad as some (I've watched a season or two of The Biggest Loser on NBC) but I know that I could be a lot better about the things that I eat and the way that I eat them. Today is the day that I change. I will be exercising regularly and trying to eat less of the unhealthy and more of the healthy. I've heard that blogging about experiences will help a person reach their goals and that is what I'm doing in the health area of my blog.
